During 2010, IDA supported 985 companies. I have been informed by IDA that total employment in IDA Ireland supported companies increased to 138,968 in 2010. IDA Ireland client companies created a total of 10,897 new jobs in 2010, while IDA Ireland supported companies lost 9,545 jobs leaving an overall increase in IDA's total employment portfolio of 1,352. In the time available, it is not possible to provide a breakdown of this information on a county by county basis but I will forward it to the Deputy as soon as it is available.
